Marcus reckons that Max Aarons would be content with being ’s long-term replacement at Everton.

According to Sky Sports, the Toffees remain in a race to sign the right-back who is valued at around £30m, after he helped Norwich get promoted to for the second time last season.

Do you think that going to Everton is a good idea?

No, they won't appreciate him

Yes, he will do a good job

But with Coleman being Everton’s first-choice right-back and club captain, Aarons would find himself in a tough battle for regular football should he swap Carrow Road for Goodison Park this summer.

Aarons doesn’t turn 22 until January but has already racked up 130 appearances in senior football with the Canaries and has experience in the Premier League – featuring in all but two of their games in their relegation campaign in 2019-2020.

To kick off this quiz on Seamus Coleman, what squad number does the right-back currently wear for the Toffees?

Coleman is 11 years his senior but has just 12 months remaining on his Everton deal, which would suggest that Aarons would be viewed as his successor should his Toffees career end next summer.

And whilst Aarons has been used to being first-choice during his three seasons in the Norwich first-team, Bent exclusively told This is Futbol that eventually replacing the international would be a good gig for the youngster:

“I think as a 21-year-old, he still has a lot of learning to do.

“He knows Coleman is there, but if the club have spoken to him and said that’s your place when Coleman moves on, I think he would be happy with that.”
